A third-generation microsatellite-based linkage map of the honey bee, Apis mellifera, and its comparison with the sequence-based physical map
Background:The honey bee is a key model for social behavior and this feature led to the selection of the species for genome sequencing. A genetic map is a necessary companion to the sequence. InExpand

Whole-Genome Scan in Thelytokous-Laying Workers of the Cape Honeybee (Apis mellifera capensis): Central Fusion, Reduced Recombination Rates and Centromere Mapping Using Half-Tetrad Analysis
While workers of almost all subspecies of honeybee are able to lay only haploid male eggs, Apis mellifera capensis workers are able to produce diploid female eggs by thelytokous parthenogenesis.Expand

Exceptionally high levels of recombination across the honey bee genome.
The first draft of the honey bee genome sequence and improved genetic maps are utilized to analyze a genome displaying 10 times higher levels of recombination (19 cM/Mb) than previously analyzedExpand

Insights into social insects from the genome of the honeybee Apis mellifera
Here we report the genome sequence of the honeybee Apis mellifera, a key model for social behaviour and essential to global ecology through pollination. Compared with other sequenced insect genomes,Expand

Five hundred and fifty microsatellite markers for the study of the honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) genome
SummaryMicrosatellites are currently considered the most useful genetic markers with wide appli-cations in genomics, quantitative and population genetics. We present here the structure ofthe coreExpand

Stationary distributions of microsatellite loci between divergent population groups of the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus).
Previous analysis of mitochondrial DNA polymorphism in the native range of the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) demonstrated the occurrence of two highly divergent (2 Myr) maternal lineagesExpand

Reconstructing the invasion and the demographic history of the yellow-legged hornet, Vespa velutina, in Europe
Abstract The yellow-legged hornet, Vespa velutina, was accidentally introduced from Southeast Asia and then invaded France and Korea over the last 10 years. Since its introduction, its predation onExpand

Rabbit and man: genetic and historic approach
New data on mitochondrial DNA polymorphism in Oryctolagus cuniculus confirm the existence of 2 maternal lineages which are geographically well separated. They provide evidence in favour of northernExpand

Native Prey and Invasive Predator Patterns of Foraging Activity: The Case of the Yellow-Legged Hornet Predation at European Honeybee Hives
Contrary to native predators, which have co-evolved with their prey, alien predators often benefit from native prey naïveté. Vespa velutina, a honeybee predator originating from Eastern China, wasExpand

A Microsatellite-Based Linkage Map of the Honeybee, Apis mellifera L.
A linkage map for the honeybee (Apis mellifera) was constructed mainly from the progeny of two hybrid queens (A. m. ligustica × A. m. mellifera). A total of 541 loci were mapped; 474 wereExpand
